Explain short-term and long-term implications of the cancer and the drug treatments for patients.
The American Cancer Society had estimated that by the end of 2012, more than 226,000 women would be diagnosed with new cases of breast cancer and more than 241,000 men would be diagnosed with new cases of prostate cancer (American Cancer Society, 2012a; American Cancer Society, 2012b). With such prevalence of womens and mens cancers, patient education and preventive services are essential. In clinical settings, advanced practice nurses must assist physicians in educating patients on risk factors, preventive services, andespecially for patients diagnosed with cancerpotential drug treatments. The clinical implications of womens and mens cancer greatly depend on early detection, which is primarily achieved through preventive services. In this Discussion, you consider the short-term and long-term implications of cancer and drug treatments associated with womens and mens health, as well as appropriate preventive services. To prepare: Select a type of cancer associated with womens or mens health, such as breast, cervical, and ovarian cancer in women and prostate cancer in men. Search the Walden Library or other reputable sources for articles examining the type of cancer you selected. Consider the pathophysiology and drug treatments for patients diagnosed with the cancer you selected. If you are focusing on womens health issues, consider how pregnancy and lactation might affect these treatment options. Reflect on short-term and long-term implications of this cancer and drug treatments for patients. Questions to be addressed in my paper: An explanation of the pathophysiology of the type of cancer you selected describe the drug treatments used for patients with this type of cancer. Explain short-term and long-term implications of the cancer and the drug treatments for patients. Summary with Conclusion REMINDERS: 1) 2-3 pages (addressing the 4 questions above excluding the title page and reference page). 2) Kindly follow APA format for the citation and references! References should be between the period of 2011 and 2016. Please utilize the references at least three below as much as possible and the rest from yours. 3) Make headings for each question.
